Button - Freak

Freak

Currently, I am a giant emotional freak. I know why. It's Alex's memorial this coming weekend. I get to travel to a place that has some of the worst traffic in the nation, drive a rental car I'm unfamiliar with, see people whom I care about but have not seen in two years and mourn the death of a friend. Oh, and I'm going by myself—which is probably for the best—and I'm going to miss my husband.

What's not to be stressed about?

So, giant emotional freak. I'm crying at videos and commercials. I'm easily irritated and I'm having trouble sleeping. It's rather like having PMS without the ability to take Midol to make some of the symptoms go away.

On the other hand, I'm really looking forward to seeing my friends. I haven't been able to come down to conventions like I'd like to because I've been so focused on my writing career and its demands. It will be good to see everyone. I'm sure it will all fall into place once I get the car, plus in the GPS and get to Dana Street.

Until then… one giant freak.
